Idlewild by Chris Spillane - 5th August Author: They discuss the band's flirtations with the charts, the student lifestyle, the Big Apple and why Green Day sound like Nickleback.
The recent crop of chart hits and pop success can be delegated to one of three main categories caused by various musical infections barring the crazy frog which can be accredited to someone who should be extradited for hate crimes against humanity.
The first of these is a seasonal problem known as Rip-offus Maximus: Whereby victims strap on their Fender Telecasters and play angular riffs until another new trend sets in.

Backstage at Somerset house is just as impressive as the architecture surrounding it. Colin recently became a father and is in high spirits "Roddy's brushing his teeth, it must be a big interview! Are you ready to hear all about his philosophies and thoughts on life? I oblige by taking the biggest bottle of Grolsch on offer and talk about drumming until Roddy returns.
On Roddy's return, personal hygiene restored, we take a seat by a window overlooking the Thames and in his rich Scottish accent, he opens the conversion "Chris, can you confirm, are there flies flying over there or am I seeing dots?Acid House Kings - I Write Summer Songs For No Reason Acid House Kings - Summer's On Its Way Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O.
